2022 Agribition made a big economic impact

Canadian Western Agribition reported there was a big economic impact as a result of their 2022 show.

The organization released a recent economic impact study by Praxis Consulting Ltd. which showed a 31 per cent increase in the overall economic impact since its last assessment, bringing the total contribution to $96.5 million.

That is up from $73.6 million in 2017.

The study also pointed to strong sales figures from the 2022 event with a peak of $979,000 in trade show booth sales, as well as livestock sales totaling $2.2 million.

The study also noted that CWA generates $17.7 million in government revenue annually, with $8.3 million in federal revenue, $8 million in provincial revenue, and $1.4 million in municipal revenue.

"Our show is a major economic driver for the province and its residents, directly or indirectly supporting one out of every 190 jobs in the Regina area," said CWA CEO, Shaun Kindopp in a news release. "The results of this study are a testament to the growth and success of Agribition."

Sheep Farming: Reintegration Of The Rams

Video: Sheep Farming: Reintegration Of The Rams

Today at Ewetopia Farms, we check on how the rams reintegrated over night. Yesterday we removed a bunch of rams from breeding groups and had to put them in a temporary squeeze so that they wouldn't harm each other after reintegration. This morning we see how and if they have settled down or not. It was a sunny, windless day for a change today so we also spent some time sitting with the rams and discussing ram behaviour and controlling aggressive behaviour. We also check out how all the ewes made out overnight too. It can be stressful on the ewes to move them when pregnant. The we check out the dorset lambs in the tarp barn and give them full access to the other pens now that the breeding ewes are gone.
